    Very nice!!!! The only problem until now is that my phone does not support 1804 MHz using SetCPU, reboot at that speed, going down to 1708 again and test with ROM Toolbox.

    There is something weird. I had installed the PG OC kernel over the Gingersteem, now when installed Esteemed, when I set the CPU frequency on the ROM Toolbox, set the app to Max 1804 MHz but the phone goes only to 1708 MHz, when go to SetCPU it says 1708 MHz then when I press to 1804 MHz the phone reboots. Uninstalled SetCPU, reboot go again to ROM Toolbox, set to 1804 MHz and the phone only goes to 1708 MHz. Double check frequency with Quadrant and the phone is reporting 1804 MHz Max but running at 1708 MHz.

    If you have Gingersteem you dont need to Wipe Data to install this ROM so you will not lose any app already installed.

    Found the problem, on ROM Toolbox when you set any frequency it really set the immediate inferior frequency, let’s say you set 1804 MHz then the phone goes at 1708 MHz, when you set 1708 MHz the phone goes at 1612 MHz and then . If you set 1804 MHz on SetCPU the phone truly goes to that frequency and reboots.

    no ;)

    Correct!

    Correct, I used mt's Gingersteem as a base for mine. Biggest diff is the kernel, others are just minor additions.

    I tried editing the eri.xml in the framework-res but it resulted in a bootloop. lol
